About the Project:
Connecticut Water is replacing approximately 2.5 miles of water main serving the General Water water system.
Approximately 75% of the new water main has been installed. Work is underway to connect homes in areas where the new main has been replaced including Oakwood Drive, Shady Lane, Brookside Drive, Brewster Road, and Ash Brook Drive.
About 2,000 feet of main line is left to install on Ash Brook Drive.
Connecticut Water will use door tags to directly notify customers that may be affected in the area at least 24 hours in advance if there is any planned disruption in water service.
This project will be done through Connecticut Water’s Water Infrastructure and Conservation Adjustment (WICA). Systematically replacing aging pipes is part of our continuing effort to provide a reliable supply of high quality drinking water and world-class service to customers. This project will help us to conserve water, a precious natural resource, by replacing old pipe that is more likely to leak underground than newer ductile iron pipe.
